COVINGTON, Ga. - A local mother has filed a police report after she picked her son up from daycare and noticed bruising on his face. 

Brianna Meador said she dropped her son, 3-year-old Levi Black, off around 2 p.m. Saturday, May 25 at K.C.'s 24-hour Daycare Center. She went back to the daycare center around 4:30 p.m. that day and noticed bruising on his face. 

"I was only planning to check on him, but then I seen this," she told The Covington News. "They told me I dropped him off like that, which I did not. Then said it was a rash, which it wasn't."

Something happened to my child and no one can tell me.

Meador took Black to the hospital where she was told his face was "bruised with broken blood vessels."

Meador told The News the daycare is refusing to take responsibility for the injuries. 

"The owner told me I could watch the cameras on Tuesday when they opened back up but refused because she got upset about a post my friend made showing the pictures and saying I picked him up like that," she said. "The daycare is refusing that it happened there and the cops said the cameras pick nothing up be there are also blind spots. Something happened to my child and no one can tell me."

Meador said Black told her he was hit by a teacher. 

Meador filed a police report with the Covington Police Department and said the state is now looking into the incident.
